Charted: 64

Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the second single by Waka Flocka Flame from his Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family album. It finds him trumpeting his apathy whilst R&B hitmaker Trey Songz croons the hook. The single was released to iTunes on March 23, 2012.
  • The rowdy, synth-heavy cut was co-produced by Troy Taylor, who has served as Songz' mentor and helped write and produce much of the R&B singer's material. Las Vegas newcomer Skyy Stylez assists him.
  • Waka told The BoomBox that he enlisted Trey for this track as a result of their friendship. "Trey actually cut a record for me before that I never put out," he shared. "A long time ago when I did Flockaveli, that's when I met him. He's been my partner since then so I was like, 'I'ma get him on this album.'"
  • The cut's meaning reflects the way Waka lives his life. "The concept of the song is really just you being who you are because you really don't care," he explained. "You showing a lot of arrogance, a lot of stubbornness, just a lot of ratchet s--t. And Trey Songz got with me on it, you know, my boy ratchet too. We cut from the same cloth."
  • The video shows Waka and Trey causing mayhem in a posh gallery. "We're just out at a rich art museum fu--ing it up," Waka explained to The BoomBox. "We don't really care. We getting money, so we can replace everything."
